Anywear Academy

What is the Anywear Academy? The Anywear Academy is a camp designed and developed as part of an NSF-funded project, led by UC Santa Cruz researchers. The camp is a oriented toward middle school girls, and teaches campers how to design social wearable technology (i.e., wearable designs that enhance co-located interaction) by using educational live-action roleplay (edu-larp) as a primary mode of teaching. Edu-larp is a semi-structured role-playing activity, in which campers engage a subject matter by taking on particular roles and enacting situations and scenarios to create immersive learning.
